Shoulder Dystocia Using Vacuum Extractor - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit depicts a mid-line cut-away view of a normal vaginal delivery conducted with a vaccuum extractor resulting in shoulder dystocia,, or brachial plexus injury. The baby's shoulder is partially trapped beneath the mother's pubic symphysis (pubic bone). As more force is applied to extract the baby from the birth canal, the brachial plexus nerves are stretched and injured.
